Road rage to blame for one in three fatal accidents

| August 4, 2010 | 0 Comments

Over a third of fatal accidents on Britain’s roads are caused by road rage, according to new research.

The study by AXA insurance found 800 lives are lost every year through road accidents caused by angry drivers.

More than one in three (35%) serious road accidents involve at least one angry driver.

AXA estimates the monetary cost of road rage at £945 million per year, or £35 per insurance policy.

“We are very concerned that a continued lack of respect on the road will drive up premiums further,” said Craig Staniland, AXA insurance director for motor.
